This was probably the hardest category to choose from, but...
1st Place- kawacy
I highly suggest you check out Kawacy's rather unique anime style, immediately I had little doubt that they would take a leading position o.o
2nd Place- Gunzfree
I honestly have no idea how they have avoided recognition for such splendid works, their work with fantastic creatures is absolutely phenomenal in every way shape and form.
3rd Place- thanomluk
Their amazingly accurate work with Final Fantasy has cemented Thanomlok as one of my favorite artists permanently <3
Again, not an easy category to choose from.
1st Place- Bajan-Art
Good lord that is some scarily realistic artwork you've got going on there my friend
2nd Place- TricepTerry
Again, ridiculously skilled and accurate, stapled by the fact that I immediately thought that was a monochrome photo of Rick Grimes
3rd Place- Naitho
Doom fanart aside, you've done amazing with pretty basic tools. Well done!
1st Place- Narga-Lifestream
Your work as Jaina Proudmoore- great costumes mixed with astounding editing skill- made you the very obvious choice for first place.
2nd Place- R-Legend
While many of your costumes remain reasonably simple in nature, it is hugely enlightening to find someone who is not always relying on that hormonal boost to become such a wonderful cosplayer- thank you once again.
3rd Place- Rejiclad
Just like Legend, you've taken some pretty odd characters to cosplay as and made it work perfectly- Resident Evil was awesome before and you have made the experience so much better!
As in... like... artdolls and things like that. Props.1st Place- AliatheGhoul
Your statues are both realistic and highly detailed, I don't think I've ever seen such sculptures anywhere else on dA until I saw your page
2nd Place- Devi-Tiger
While I myself am not a huge Pokemon fan and only actively play Go (Team Valor before you ask), your works with literally stitching together Pokemon is amazing, and your determination for your little project is duly noted.
3rd Place- Skadi-r
The Kindred Art doll dragged me into your page quite well- it really was a well-made piece. Congratulations!
As in SFM models and stuff. Not Victoria's Secret.1st Place- itzaspace
My god I didn't expect to find anyone so skilled in environment creation, I was almost certain you had ripped it from another artist, it was so... good D:
(Where's the justice, I have no skills whatsoever lol)
2nd Place- Eden-West
Your skill in development is quite wonderful and, when added to your modelling skill, everything becomes beautiful
3rd Place- LaceWingedSaby & Gr-imm
This was a tough call with Gr-imm, who is a model creator as well. However... the tipping point was that I figured I should have one phenomenal artist who uses other people's works to create their own.
By technicality, Gr-imm is tied for third place. They have made some wonderful models for no real purpose besides creation and... let's face it, those are some pretty great models.
1st Place- AmazingArtistYellow
While I was never a huge fan of Undertale, both you and the second place winner made such smooth and elaborate animations that it would be biased of me not to give you first place.
2nd Place- MaskedGolem
Like I said, your animation was incredibly smooth and well made. Well done!
3rd Place- myszka11o
Your GIFs are really high-quality and smooth (even if they are GIFs). They have the basic idea behind them that makes them a delight and widely-used.
1st Place- Shabow
The game you are creating has a unique concept behind it and... good lord that is absolutely stunningly beautiful environment work.
2nd Place- itzaspace
Your game is actually very interesting to me personally and I do plan on watching it closely o.o The terrain you submitted was actually.... beautiful. Very LotR-sy.
3rd Place- Eden-West
While your game certainly seems fun and incredibly interesting, it lacks the environmental prowess of the first placers. I still love it to death though!
1st Place- gas13
Your TF2 and CS:GO game screens literally astounded me, the style of Infectinator 2 has always been so wonderful in my eyes and you have implemented it perfectly onto two of the most iconic games today.
2nd Place- spritemight
Your title screens astounded me when I first found you and now you're doing that comp I suggested you for... so... ever wonder how I found you originally? Here I am.
3rd Place- IzId0r
Your pixel art pieces are much less complicated than the other two's but... they still have their merit of awesomeness.
Note: Concept Art here means having the best unique concept for a single piece of art
1st Place- SilverLeon88
I've been quite a fan of your hive OC beings for quite a while now, well done!
2nd Place- Harshcore
Your Mario piece literally blew me away with its sheer badassery (pardon my French)
3rd Place- ArianeVass
Your works actually rather astounded me, I'd like to keep seeing more from you you lovely little person you.
These works are literally just there for goofy-ness and whatever made me chuckle/laugh uncontrollably because I have no self control and I sound stupid.
1st Place- CitizenWolfie
Between the Cthulu/Jesus hybrid and the wonderful Fallout Charlie Brown edition, it was hard not to immediately give you first place (I could not have added anything better to the "You're S.P.E.C.I.A.L. Charlie Brown!" piece myself)
2nd Place- Tesparg
3rd Place- erikathegoober
Your little display of Tracer's antics and hyperactivity was and still is my favorite piece of Overwatch fanart to date. Well done ~
And... that's the art awards, everyone. I hope you enjoyed and got to find new brilliant artists! (I honestly don't know what else to say here so... I'm just.. gonna... go...)
Right. Cheers gents~
